Reviews for Moxifloxacin ophthalmic

Vigamox (moxifloxacin) for Ophthalmic Surgery: “I used Vigamox for cataract surgery. It has serious side effects that even doctors are unaware of. I got ringing in my ears and tingling in my hands feet and legs. I also got leg pain. The tingling is a symptom that a irreversible peripheral neuropathy may start to occur. Six weeks later I still have the ringing in my ears and tingling. If you get any tingling - stop this drug immediately.”

Vigamox (moxifloxacin) for Ophthalmic Surgery: “After cataract surgery took Vigamox and two other eyedrops. I have had difficulty urinating and some burning in the urethra . I did some research and found that this was a possible, but not common side effect. It's been two weeks so I will stop this medication, it's almost gone anyway, and see what happens.”

Vigamox (moxifloxacin) for Conjunctivitis, Bacterial: “This is the worst eye drop I have ever experienced. My eyes are dry, itchy, I want to scratch. Extremely red eyes, very dizzy, blurred vision, pain, constant watering of eyes, burning, very light sensitive, unable to even have house light on, blurred vision after putting drops in. I have stopped taking it and going back to doctor to try something different.”

Vigamox (moxifloxacin) for Conjunctivitis, Bacterial: “I have difficulties using prescription eyedrops because most contain a preservative called benzalkonium chloride that I'm allergic too - my eyes get red, irritated and burn. This eye drop does not have the preservative. It was a life saver for my conjunctivitis! Within 2 days it started to clear up - the drops were easily tolerated.”

Vigamox (moxifloxacin) for Conjunctivitis, Bacterial: “My eye did swell when I used these eyedrops. It was scary and painful. I don't know why the symptoms list eye swelling under incidents unknown because it happened to me, and I reported it to the prescribing doctor.”

For Conjunctivitis, Bacterial: “I am using APOTEX moxifloxacin following cataract surgery. The squeeze bottle is made of hard plastic and is almost impossible to squeeze. Consequently I have bumped my eye ball with it multiple times while trying to get the drop into my eye. This is a terrible brand for elderly fingers to manage.”

For Conjunctivitis, Bacterial: “After one dose my eye got much worse. The discharge increased significantly after the dose, my eye got much redder and it felt like I had something in my eye. My eye looked swollen. I went to Urgent Care and was prescribed Polymyxin B Sulfate and Trimethoprim Ophthalmic Solution which cleared up my eye within 2 days.”

For Ophthalmic Surgery: “I had been given these drops for a corneal ulcer, and being a very sensitive individual to medication, I experienced side effects, such as heartburn, headaches, body & backaches. It worked for my problem, however, not without having to experience all these unwanted side effects.”

For Conjunctivitis, Bacterial: “I had this moxifloxacin eyedrop prescribed to prevent infection while my corneal abrasion heals. It seems to be working fine, no sign of infection so far. I have very sensitive eyes, so I was wary of side effects, but experienced nothing special so far besides symptoms expected from the abrasion itself. I had mild headache, I've been tearing up a lot and had irritation in my eye - but that just as well can be the result of the injury.”

For Conjunctivitis, Bacterial: “The small moxifloxacin bottle is so hard to squeeze, there's a chance of dropping it. Doesn't the manufacturer have quality control? Shouldn't be so difficult to administer a drop.”
